Scientists Idea to Control Deer Population

Couldn't believe this even after I read the article. This has got to be some more faulty science from Al Gore!

I don't see how this could go bad.......I mean it's worked so well with the wolves......

Or they could get more people interested in hunting and it will all work itself out.

I know there is no easy catch all answer but I do not believe that introducing another alpha preditor into the eco system is a good idea.

Never underestimate the stupidity of mankind.  The steep reduction in alpha predators over the last century or so has allowed the stupid humans to thrive and further pollute the gene pool methinks.  Wonder if we could find a nice island to let them experiment with, like maybe Long Island?   --099-780

Auto insurance companies are the ones pushing to eliminate deer herds, they are having to pay too much money out and they have a huge lobby. In MS, the limit on does is 7 if you include bow hunting with the gun season. Our lease has gone from great to good to not so good. I truly believe too many does were killed in our area in the last 20 years and we have seen the result of it. The auto insurance companies would love to see the deer gone.
